Dubai: UAE residents are expected to experience strong winds with dusty skies and “very rough” conditions at sea on Thursday.

According to the National Center of Meteorology (NCM), skies across the UAE are looking sunny, getting hazy at times during the daytime over some areas.

Strong winds are expected to repeatedly blow, at a speed of 15 –30 km/h, reaching up to 50 km/h at times.

The winds are expected to blow dust and sand into the air, especially during the day, reducing horizontal visibility. Dusty conditions are especially expected in the west of the country, such as Abu Dhabi.

Dubai is currently at 26°C with mostly sunny skies.
